Graduation has come and gone, but we are still celebrating our graduates! Brookstone’s Class of 2022 was accepted to 89 different colleges and universities around the country and even the world. They also received over $7.3 million dollars in scholarships!! What an amazing group of young men and women! We are so incredibly proud of them!
As we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, it is only fitting to honor those teachers with an official, “Thank you.” Thank you for what you do day in and day out and for the many ways, often unacknowledged, that you pour yourselves out for the sake of your students. We simply cannot say thank you enough. Here at Brookstone, people matter. Our students matter and they know they matter. They know our teachers are FOR them, fighting for them, working on their behalf, and doing everything they can to provide the […]
The University of Georgia had some Brookstone Cougars on the sidelines taking in all the G-Day action! Freshman Mal Waldrep, Juniors Walter Blanchard and Dylan Thornton were visiting as recruits, and former UGA player Prather Hudson, Brookstone Class of 2016, joined them on the sidelines. We can’t wait to watch these boys in the years to come! So Go Dawgs, but Go Cougars always and forever!
Throughout this school year we have enjoyed celebrating Brookstone’s 70 anniversary – 70 years that encompass a remarkable history and vision built on a solid foundation of values. This important milestone has given us a chance to celebrate our founding, reflect on our success, revel in the sense of community we’ve built over seven decades, and imagine our next 70 years. To celebrate the 70th anniversary, we invited several people to reflect on Brookstone’s history in a video story. Two things were evident, the values that Brookstone was founded on […]
Just before Spring Break, our Upper School students took part of Brookstone’s 15th annual Day of Service. Spreading out around the Columbus area, our students partnered with 14 different local agencies to help them with everything from painting to landscaping to playing with kids! Before the work began, we gathered our students together to hear from a special guest. Brookstone parent Colonel Jim Hathaway, soon to return Ft. Benning to command the 198th Infantry Brigade, visited with our students and spoke about Servant Leadership and how we can offer hope […]

One of the highlights of our year is when we get to honor a few of our alumni as they are inducted into the Distinguished Alumni Society. It is a night of celebration, reflection, and gratitude toward the Brookstone School community and the ties that bind us together.

To be considered for the honor, recipients must be accomplished in both professional achievement […]
Last week, we held the sixth annual Brookstone Under the Lights! It might be one of the most favorite events we have here at Brookstone. It’s an event especially for moms and their boys, but the best part of the night is the interaction between the youngest cougars and members of our Varsity Football team. It’s such a fun evening for all of those invovled! As one of our teachers said, “This event always displays #WhyBrookstone! I love seeing our students of all ages interacting with each other! It’s a […]
